Green infrastructure in Germany
Germany is renowned for its energy efficiency efforts so it’s little surprise that nature-based infrastructure, including living walls, is quickly gaining popularity.
The ability of nature-based solutions to improve energy efficiencies, and the vast benefits for the environment, economy and local communities are becoming more well-known. Government efforts to support sustainability have quickly spread to commerce and industry, where urban landscaping forms a way for brands to show their support for all things natural.
Living walls have become a firm favourite in Germany, where the benefits of vertical landscaping in urban areas where there is limited space have been brought to the fore. Data centres have emerged as a huge opportunity for greening in Germany, with large windowless facades and flat roofs where different greening solutions can be integrated.
